Foundation Refresh


Every now and then you have to hit the refresh button on your makeup staples. For Summer I had to ditch, only momentarily, my Makeup For Ever HD foundation for something new. I had to try the TARTE Amazonian Clay 12 HR Full Coverage SPF 15 foundation, whew that’s a lengthy name. I’m loving my new foundation! I like that it already has a sunscreen into the formula, and that is great for living South Florida where the sun is a BEAST! The Amazonian clay formula packs 5 benefits that attracted me to this foundation: nuetralizes complexion, longevity (hence the 12-hr), combined with the pigments give a true color, broad color spectrum, and sustainable harvesting for the ingredients (for more info about Amazonian clay visit here).

I also bought the Clean Slate Flawless 12-hr Brightening Primer. I’ve been loyal to my Revlon Primer, but I decided to change the type of primer I usually go for. My former primer targeted pore appearance. This primer is an illuminating formula. This works well for those who deal with hyper-pigmentation since it will brighten the skin and even tone.

See my updated foundation routine below. I have an awesome application method that you’ll love!

*Both products were personally purchased from Sephora.
